Lichen has look of dwarf Hypogymnia, with white veins on thallus, cilia on lobes tipped with black or dark-brown, reverse concolorous with surface. Found while trimming purple wallflower in front yard. Thallus may have pruinae or soridia on older part of thallus. Two small black holes in thallus observed. A couple of tube-like apothecia?, hollow, also observed. Apothecia? not over 3mm tall.

From the description in Brodo, Physcia adscendens sounds promising.
a perennial purple wallflower, in front yard. Stem perhaps 5 years old, dead, with this one lichen growing on it. Small tubes (<3mm) which may be apothecia-like structures or may just be open-ended tubes also observed. No cilia on reverse, but cilia on lobe tips. Hope Jason has time to look at this.
